  1. Can anyone explain what a non-computer based (NCB) entry is? I have been looking every where to find it but not clear explanation of what it is.


    • Hi Kayla,
      It’s my understanding that an NCB is a hand-written note or warning in or on an applicant’s file. The challenge with NCB is that it describes the format, but not the essence of the issue raised.
